We are open minded for innovatif working methods. Therefor we are in an continually echange with other regional, national and europeen schools and other partners.
Through the EVS will will give youth the oppurtunity to make work experiences (dealing with handicaped children or intercultural challenges, teamwork, school organization, project design, conflit managment). They will also make personal experiences (autonomy, personal responsability, communication, intercultural exchange).
